Baumea (Cyperaceae) 4b:128
Tasmania has eight native species of Baumea. These are all species of swamps or damp coastal areas. They have erect stems and tough leaves. Some species (e.g. B. juncea) have highly reduced leaves, some of which form sheathing scales giving an appearance very much like some Restionaceae.
